Default Optimal Airspace for Sundown E10v3

I am in a transition stage to a new box from my current 1.29 cubes @ 31hz box, and I'm trying to get the absolute maximum potential out of this subwoofer off of rated power (Rockford Fosgate R500X1D birthsheeted @ 641watts)

My car is a 99 civic sedan and the sub is just in the trunk fired towards trunk lid. I listen to mostly EDM and hip hop but I also do listen to enough death metal to the point where I'd still like to hear the separation in the double kicks. My main emphasis however is digging out the lows so I'm thinking a tuning frequency somewhere between 29-32hz because I still wanna preserve that SPL

What would you guys think is the optimal airspace my E10v3 would need to accomplish this?

Might want to consider a tline for that kind of bandwidth since you still want to dig down low, yet play precise on metal double kicks

Holy shit. My current box does a pretty okay job right now with dealing with double kicks. I assume going bigger is just going to muddy double kicks more?

Not gonna lie but my current box does pretty much everything I wanted the sub to do, but if there is more performance left in the sub, I wanna use it

Going bigger will usually end up limiting accuracy and preciseness

I'm just conflicted if I should increase airspace to like 1.35 or slightlybigger so I can retain similar characteristics with my current box, but have a deeper extension or just stick with tried and true.

I'm reading every forum I can on this subject. I've read more than once that people say Sundowns like bigger boxes, and I've been looking at SA10 boxes since this is pretty much a 2012 SA10.

Do you think going up to 1.35 is going to hamper double kick response? Should I go down to 1.25? I just want to build the perfect enclosure for this 10 so I can just run the sub perfectly for the rest of its life
